SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Now Includes GCC 6.2, GNU Binutils 2.26.1 & GDB 7.11.1

The updated toolchain included in SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 comes with some of the latest and most advanced development utilities, such as GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) 6.2, GDB (GNU Debugger) 7.11.1, and GNU Binutils 2.26.1, thus enabling app developers to use the newest technologies when creating their amazing projects. While the new GDB and GNU Binutils versions are available as normal updates, GCC 6.2 must be installed via YaST or with zypper (e.g. zypper in gcc-6). Please note that after the installation of GCC 6.2, you’ll have to use gcc-6 or g++-6 instead of gcc and g++ to compile your program.
